    I had my note 2 in a pouch that covered the entire phone, but after a year of use I did see two tiny scratches. Only visible at certain angles with the screen turned off.

    This is my third note 3. First two phones were defective right from the box. So I am super paranoid now and want a case and screen protector

    I've been around too much sand to risk it. Sand is a little harder than glass so it will scratch it, and if you have it on your fingers, just the dust will do so.

    Sorry about all the issues you have had with your Note 3 already. At least you didn't give up on it and have a good device now.

    Sometimes people need to have it on, like I work as a Project Manager on a construction site and I need something on it otherwise it's going to get screwed up :(.

    I pull out as I already had a glass screen protector on top and I find that is more protection and better. ;)

    I know the standard ones that Verizon gives out are pretty good.

    Always really good touch response still, very clear.

    They are 10 bucks but it really isn't that bad.

    I decided on the iloome Flex Mate at $ 16.99 direct with shipping because Spigen Glass TR was $40 and it sounds difficult to lift off if you mess up placing it on the screen. Love Seido cases in the past very durable solid color through the plastic and no metal to interfere with emf. The surface case has lip edge for flat face down drops which i have done maybe 2-3 times in the last year.

    I will let you over time if this screen protector holds up and the ease of installation for the money . I was going to purchase the Flex Mate from Amazon but it didn't qualify for free shipping. I ordered from iloomne direct and low and behold Amazon does the fulfillment of the order.

    Thanks again for all great info on this forum:)

    Yes, it took a while for Corning's web site to reflect it.

    Not sure if anybody posted, but thought this was the most unique, but truly protective S-View case that I've seen on the market.

    For all of you Otterbox fans, this looks like it could be a possible consideration as an alternate:

    Galaxy Note 3 Case Slim Armor View - Galaxy Note 3 - Galaxy Note - Samsung - Brands | Spigen

    SGP has them on sale right now for $46. Too bulky for my tastes, but if I didn't mind having a bulky case, I'd highly consider this one.

    I bought the Otterbox Defender Case and it make the note look bulky.. On a good note I like that it has a screen protector and it covers up the note pretty well. I only use the holster as a kickstand.. I only wish that Radio Shack had it in different colors.

    Looks awesome, but any type of flip covers makes the phone very difficult to handle.

    Finally! my UAG - Navigator case is came! :D :D :D

    Short Review:
    • The finish is extremely well done!
    • Nice to hold, non-slip at all!
    • Well done button holding part, the best cut out I ever seen.
    • Elegance Look!
    • No finger magnet!
    • Feel strong hold and not heavy and in nice thickness size.
    • Came with extra screen protector.
    • 3rd hole is confirm there already.
    • The best case I ever have for my Note 3, this will be my 1st favor case now.

    Caution:
    • I should pick others color, the white is nice but it might easier get dirt due to the surface finish.

    Of all the cases with a kickstand offering both portrait and landscape view (a must) which one is the best? Got a picture? Prefer something not very chunky.
